Senate Group Mocks Traffic Plunge At “Failing Breitbart”

Filed under infighting is funny:

A group linked to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) echoed President Trump’s tweeting style Friday to slam the Stephen Bannon-led site Breitbart News for falling traffic numbers.

“Failing @BreitbartNews: traffic plummets 20% this year, desperate for attention! SAD!” the group wrote on Twitter to its 472 followers from an account called Senate Ldshp Fund.

McConnell foes quickly responded to the tweet, including Bannon political adviser Andrew Surabian and Doug Stafford, Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) chief adviser. “I mean, come on – are you really allowed to make fun of something’s reach from a social account with 400 followers??” asked Stafford.
